Palestine urges EU to recognize Palestinian state

The Palestinian Authority has made efforts to convince all EU members to recognize a Palestinian state in response to US and Israeli policies and decisions regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Palestine's President Mahmoud Abbas on Saturday called on the EU to collectively recognize a Palestinian state on the pre-1967 lines, with east Jerusalem as its capital.

Abbas made his appeal during a meeting in Ramallah with Spanish diplomat and politician Miguel Moratinos, who also serves as the UN High Representative for the Alliance of Civilizations.
